Since the Republicans are in control of the major power assigned the duty of passing federal legislation that would seem appropriate. They certainly don't represent "The People".
Yeah, right. Once we take the Senate, then your lie may become fact. When Reid abolishes the filibuster, it's Katie bar the door.

Not anymore than you are. No, I will change that because unlike you I have never accused someone as being gay as an immature insult. Stupid progressive thinking -"I know! I’ll insult a conservative by asserting that he’s gay. Yeah, that’ll blow his mind. I’m clever." And because you are Progressive you foolishly think such behavior doesn't make you the homophobe you are.
What is with you guys and the Pope. He hasn't changed Church doctrine and has stated it is up to God -as a Christian you should believe this also. The Catholic Church continues to view the homosexual act as a sin as was noted in an article I posted earlier.
Your simplistic thinking knows no bounds as well as your hate for anyone who doesn't agree with you.
You really need to give the progressive crap a rest.

You attempt to create a stereotype without a clue of what you're talking about.

If humans aren't progressive, what are we?? Frightened and regressivelike you??

Youw own Town proudly proclaims itself as progressive. Why do you make this silly attempt to demonize the word??

What is the alternative?? Let's stand still and pretend it's 1965??

What would the owld be without progressives??

George Washington was a Progressive, as was Thomas jefferson, Alexander hamilton, and the rest of our founding fathers.

The conservatives were tories.

You're not very good at this. You have 'issues'.

That sounds like something Reagan would say. He was, after all, suffering from dementia.
So now you are saying that Bush was dumb and Reagan had dementia, yet both were better Presidents than Urkel, The Empty Suit Man Boy who is supposed to be so damn smart he gave us ObamaCare.

Historian Michael Beschloss pronounced the day after his election, he’s “probably the smartest guy ever to become president.” Naturally, Obama shares this assessment. As he assured us five years ago,“I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors.”

Well, apart from his signature health-care policy. That’s a mystery to him.“I was not informed directly that the website would not be working,” he told us. The buck stops with something called “the executive branch,” which is apparently nothing to do with him. As evidence that he was entirely out of the loop, he offered this:

Had I been I informed, I wouldn’t be going out saying,“Boy, this is going to be great.” You know, I’m accused of a lot of things, but I don’t think I’m stupid enough to go around saying,“This is going to be like shopping on Amazon or Travelocity,” a week before the website opens, if I thought that it wasn’t going to work.

Ooooo-kay.

So, if I follow correctly, THE SMARTEST PRESIDENT EVER..

* is not smart enough to ensure that his website works;
* he’s not smart enough to inquire of others as to whether his website works;
* he’s not smart enough to check that his website works before he goes out and tells people what a great website experience they’re in for.

But he is smart enough to know that he’s not stupid enough to go around bragging about how well it works if he’d already been informed that it doesn’t work.

So he’s smart enough to know that if he’d known what he didn’t know he’d know enough not to let it be known that he knew nothing. The country’s in the very best of hands.

Michael Beschloss is right: This is what it means to be smart in a neo-monarchical America.

Obama spake, and it shall be so.

And, if it turns out not to be so, why pick on him? He talks a good Royal Proclamation; why get hung up on details?

Until October 1, OBAMA HAD NEVER DONE ANYTHING — not run a gas station, or a doughnut stand — other than let himself be wafted onward and upward to the next do-nothing gig.

Even in his first term, he didn’t really do: Starting with the 2009 trillion-dollar stimulus, he ran a money-no-object government that was all money and no objects; he spent and spent, and left no trace.

Some things he massively expanded (food stamps, Social Security disability) and other things he massively diminished (effective foreign policy), but all were, so to speak, preexisting conditions.

Obamacare is the first thing Obama has actually done, and, if you’re the person it’s being done to, it’s not pretty.

You people have been making a mountain out of a mole hill for how many years now? It just makes you look stupid. "
Obama was a sitting junior Senator when he made those statements,but he wasn't campaigning in any of those locations. That doesn't make us look stupid,it only makes him look stupid and his Zombies look stupid for trying to defend him.

Obammy Done Spake

The president promised to “fundamentally transform” America.

But Obama is an incompetent, so “fundamentally transformed” is a euphemism for “WRECKED BEYOND REPAIR.” As a socialist, he makes a good socialite.

But on he staggers, with a wave of his scepter, delaying this, staying that, exempting the other, according to his regal whim and internal polling.

The omniscient beneficent Sovereign will now graciously “allow” us “folks” to keep all those junk plans from bad-apple insurers. Yet even the wisest King cannot reign forever, and what will happen decades down the road were someone less benign — perhaps even (shudder) a Republican — to ascend the throne and wield these mighty powers?

Hey, relax: If you like your constitution, you can keep your constitution. Period. And your existing amendments. Well, most of them — except for the junk ones ...

Colo. Democrats blamed for $80M hit to economy by pushing out gun firm Magpul
A year ago, the rapidly expanding firm was preparing to build a state-of-the-art facility in Broomfield, but pivoted after the gun-control bills gained steam. Magpul was founded in 1999 by CEO Richard Fitzpatrick in the basement of his home in Longmont, Colo.
The company plans to keep a small presence in Colorado in order to continue to fight the ammunition-magazine law.

Good riddance. I see they are moving their distribution and shipping to Cheyenne, Wyoming and their headquarters to Texas. That's what they should have done in the first place. Let the gun nuts circle their wagons around the second amendment.

Richard Fitzpatrick, Magpul’s CEO:“This relocation will also improve business operations and logistics as we utilize the strengths of Texas and Wyoming in our expansion.”

You are the only person I know who would claim to be totally clueless that there is a political ideology called Progressive. Search for you telling you all about.

It is a re-make of socialism because- you know- despite the failures in history of this ideology this time it will work.
